See The Music: James "Munky" Shaffer of Korn Talks "Narcissistic Cannibal"
Thu, 13 Oct 2011 09:02:40
On their forthcoming tenth album and second for Roadrunner Records, The Path Of Totality [December 6, 2011], Korn strike the perfect balance between raw metallic violence and sleek electronic vibrancy, yielding a new sound.
That new sound is instantly apparent after just one listen to the band's latest single, "Narcissistic Cannibal" [Featuring Skrillex and Kill The Noise]. Korn have brought heavy music to a crossroads, ushering in the future in the process. This is the kind of metal that you could hear in the future of Blade Runner or Terminator.
So how did the song come together? What did Skrillex add to the tune? Where do the guitars fit in? What's it all about?
